Essentially; "Shut up and gently caress off your taking away from The Real Struggle tm" can come in two flavours. 1) is a genuine belief that people talking about leftist things are inherently going to be co-opted and used and should stop trying to live inside of anything or make money off of it. I'm personally sympathetic to that PoV even if I don't personally hold it. 2) is the belief that talking isn't action, that you aren't "really committed" unless you are doing everything the way the person in question is doing things and your being fake about your principles.

The latter also dovetails nicely with people who believe that socialists must live only on very low wages in order to be valid/ have a point.

I'm a firm believer in "Pointless Slapfights About Socialism in One Thread" myself. And that thread isn't this one.

Talking is action, but you can always tell who is sincere and who is a scam artist based on how their ratio of producing material related to their mission statement to begging for donations on Twitch skews towards the latter.

it is, thank you!
2 without the hyperbole is basically where i'm coming from: talking on the internet can be praxis, depending on what you're doing, but it can also lead to you feeling like you've engaged in praxis from sharing a meme or writing a vent tweet or whatever. admittedly, i don't know poo poo about whoever this guy is, maybe he's straight vanguard, but i feel comfortable guessing somebody who is fine with exploiting cheap labor to manufacture their merchandise keeps their activism to violent rhetoric that makes them feel better without accomplishing anything else

Thankfully, no one buys stuff like this, because fear doesn’t sell products, especially not fear of apocalypse and death. We’re rational beings, and allay our brains’ chemical response to threats by careful and considered thought. Free will is real, and homo sapiens has thankfully transcended the stimulus-response paradigm of life to become post-animal models of logic and reason. If that weren’t true, then we would be doomed to repeat our obvious mistakes, both personally, and in society at large.

quote:

It’s been postulated that this universe is a simulation, running somewhere on an ultra-powerful computer, and we’re objects inside of it, reacting endlessly to stimuli, interacting in unpredictable ways to create emergent behavior surprising or entertaining to those running the simulation. Shine a bright light on an amoeba, and it moves. Let humans develop the technology to turn oil into plastic, and we create Bratz, and heart valves, and CigarzUp, and seatbelts, and dildos, and Nintendos. They’re taking screenshots of us, getting run over by buses, sucking the cherry from a combination weed-pipe-coffee-mug into our lungs, thrashing around as we scream. At least someone, somewhere, is getting something out of all of this.

Me and one of my friends went out today for some dinner so we stopped at a pretty nice restaurant. I don't smoke and most of the time I sit in the non smoking section but I didn't feel like walking to the back of the restaurant today so me and my friend sat at the first table we came to in the smoking section. Since most ppl should be aware that I don't smoke I didn't think I would have any problems. I was wrong. This jerk lit up a cigarette right next to me. I couldn't belive this fat jerk was disrepecting me like this so I turned around and looked him right in the eye and said " you might want to put that out fag..........That is,if you value your health". The guy said a couple of cuss words and told me to go to the non smoking section. Well that did it. I got up went over to the table and said "excuse me fag but you didn't clean your plate", and then I took his plate and bashed him over the head with it. Then his friend that was with him got up and took a swing at me, I ducked it and then gave him a swift round kick to the ribs. I then hip tossed him on the table and then I turned around and looked one of the waiters right in the eye and said "this orders to go" and then I tossed the table with the guy on it a good 14 feet across the room. As me and my friend were storming out the manager apologized to us but I told him it was too late as I would never eat there again. ~mjq jazz bar

I came home this afternoon after picking up my copy of gta and I smelled something funny from my neighbors house. I went over there and the door was unlocked so I went right in. Sure enough there was my neighbor and two of his friends smoking to their hearts content. I told them they had two options, one- they could put the joints out or two- I would put the joints out for them. My neighbor had run ins with me before so he knew I meant business so he threw his joint down and told me to leave. I said you made a wise choice but I'm still calling the cops and then I turned to leave. My neighbor then got up off the couch got behind me and said a few cuss words and told me to mind my business. Well that did it. I turned around, took off my shades, looked him straight in the eye and said "lets get high". I then front kicked him a good 8 feet in the air. Then his other friend came at me with the bong, I grabbed his arm, snapped it and then hit him in the stomach with the bong. His other friend ran into the kitchen so I went after him. He was in the corner crying so I said "this is your brain" and then I grabbed a frying pan and said "this is your brain on drugs" and then I hit him in the head as hard as I could with the frying pan. After that I called the cops and they came over and arrested my neighbor and his friends. As I was leaving the sarge shouted out to me thanks. I turned around, took off my shades, looked him straight in the eye and said " well you know sarge, perhaps if we build a freaking dunkin doughnuts on this street it would give you guys a excuse to ride up here once or twice a week and keep the crime down. I then threw my shades on the ground to let him know I meant business. I feel pretty good about what I did for my neighborhood today. ~mjq jazz bar
